Twisted…

Tuesday, 15 November 2011

A random short post for a Tuesday but I found this image of a spiral staircase below and things well … spiralled … from there! Aren’t they just beautiful? Although I am not especially terrified of heights, I get that weird jelly-like feeling in the bottom of my feet and stomach if I lean over the rails of a staircase – this way I get to appreciate the view minus the vertigo!  These images have actually inspired me to make a gallery wall in my living room so watch this space! Have a wonderful Tuesday everyone!

I have blogged about spiral staircases here too – can’t help the obsession!

  2. It's so nice to find such beauty in things as ordinary, functional and often-overlooked as staircases.

  10. These remind me of one thing: Hitchcock's "Vertigo" and his extraordinary technical talent.

  11. I get that same queasy feeling in my stomach when I lean over the railing. Admiring these beautiful staircases is much better in blog form :-)
